Green Tea & Ginger Peel-off Mask

As I am writing this blog post, my face feels softer and smoother than it has felt in years! I discovered a green tea peel-off mask at Walmart the other day, and I think the next time I'm there I will stock up on this wonderful and cheap ($1.37) little luxury from Montagne Jeunesse in the UK!

Perhaps I needed it. I was tossing some Kroger receipts when I got home the other day and discovered the store in Fayetteville had given me a senior discount! Ack! But then I checked a receipt from the Newnan store and saw they did *not* give me the discount, and I was so happy. "Let me get this straight," said my husband. "You're happy because you got charged more money at the store in Newnan?" "That's right," I said. I know you friends understand. I'm not at all vain about the fact I'm 49 and pushing 50, but sheesh, let's not rush the senior thing, okey dokey? Anyway, a little facial treatment is good for both body and soul, and I was delighted this one actually contains camellia sinensis leaf extract. It has a nice, pleasant smell too.

I hadn't used a peel-off mask in years and had forgotten how much I enjoy them! Maybe I'm weird, but I love scrunching up my face as the mask dries and feeling that tightness that lets me know the mask is drying. Twenty minutes after application and I was sufficiently scrunched up that I knew it was time to peel away. My skin felt truly wonderful, and this is a mask I will definitely be using again. I just wish I had a big tube of it instead of a single-use packet!


  1. I understand the senior thing. I'm 60 so when they have to ask I feel better. :)

  2. At age 57, I was recently asked by a cashier at Subway "Do you consider yourself a senior citizen?" (what a nice way to ask!) And yes, if it saves me money, I do, so I told her my age and I did qualify for their discount!

  3. Ooh, thank you! I like the feel of that sort of mask too. I can sympathize with the senior thing. I was dismayed when I turned 40 and already received something from AARP!

  4. What fun!
    I found something similar in Taiwan at the 7-11 store when I was there. It was amazing what you would find there in another country.

  5. My sister gave me one of these a while back.... I've never used it, but you make me want to drop everything this morning and go get 'my mask on'!

  6. Dear youthful looking Angela,
    Very funny post!

  7. That green tea mask sounds great - I want to try it. Thanks for the review.

    I don't have a problem telling the cashier that I qualify for a senior discount - every little bit helps. ☺
